Stegmeier, Jacob, Tonawanda, was born in Wurtemberg, Germany, in 1831, a son of Jacob and Barbara Stegmeier.
He was reared on a farm until fourteen, when he engaged to learn the brewing business, followed this until twenty
years of age, when he came to America, coming direct to Tonawanda. He first found employment on a farm, six months
later he engaged at saw mill work and at this remained twenty-seven years. By strict attention to business and
the straightforward manner in which he performed his duties, the end of seven years found him superintendent of
a large saw mill; this position he held for twenty years, when he resigned the office to engage in the grocery
business, retiring from active business in 1889. He still owns the store, which he rents. In politics Mr. Stegmeier
is a Republican, and though not an aspirant to office he was induced to fill the office of assessor for three years.
In 1856 he married Elizabeth Kline of Tonawanda, who was a native of Bavaria, and they had three daughters. Mrs.
Stegmeier died in 1889.
